Ok, today I've got FYI Challenge #11 - my second to last contribution as a DT member, as my term ends with the next challenge. (To check out this weeks inspiration image, stop by the blog post here.)
I was inspired by the mirrored reflection and the color with pops of white (in the clouds in the photo). Here's the close up:
materials: patterned paper, spray ink: Studio Calico; sentiment: Pink Paislee; stamps: Scrap Rat (medallion), Stampin' Up (circle); ink: Versamark; embossing: American Crafts, Stampin Up; pin: K & Co.; string: Divine Twine
For this tag, I used a new technique I learned at CKC last week in Nicole Samuels Studio Calico class. It's a resist technique - that I have not quite mastered yet. I stamped the flowery circle with Versamark, heat embossed with white powder then sprayed some Mister Huey and wiped off the excess. The white embossing resists the ink so you get this high contrast image. Of course, learning this new trick prompted me to purchase 12 new Misters (but I had a buy one/get one free coupon - so it was really only like buying 6 :)
Besides amazing and challenging (really challenging) inspiration photos, FYI boasts an amazing design team. I am so impressed with their work - you can check out what they did with this weeks inspiration on the FYI blog. We'd love it if you would play along!
